The key data point from the Dashboard report:


Market_Share    Units    Group
2.35%    23,263    hybrids
0.64%    6,337    diesels
0.04%    348    Leaf+Volt

I'm in complete agreement that there are three groups of hybrids. The
Prius alone has enough sales to have been in the top 10 vehicles sold,
twice, on two separate occasions with sales of 11,000-18,000+ per
month over the past years. The middle group, about 5-6 models, sold in
1,000-2,000 per month. Together, this middle group just about equals
Prius sales. Then there are the 'experimental' or 'me too' cars sold
in very small numbers, less than 500, limited markets, and often by
special order ... greenwash.
